A Berrylicious Nails Of The Day - FNUG - Cover Shot*

No matter how much I love reading blogs, I'll always be a real, print and paper magazine girl at heart, and at this time of year nothing makes me happier than a big, chunky, September issue landing on my doormat. I've only flicked through a couple of magazines so far, but it's clear to see that yet again berry tones in both clothing and make up are going to be hot for Autumn and Winter 2015.

Cry! We've barely had a summer yet. so I'm not quite ready to embrace a full on berry lip but I have found a nail polish  from My Pure that fulfils those berry fantasies and bridges the gap between summer and autumn.

Yes, it's another polish from Danish brand FNUG. I've become a big fan of these polishes over the last few months and I'm already building up a nice little collection. FNUG polishes are 3 free and are free from Formaldehyde, Toluene and Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP). As well as providing long lasting, chip resistant colour they also contain caviar extract, silica and vitamins A, D, E, and B to help nourish and strengthen the nails.

FNUG Nail Polish in 55 Cover Shot in my opinion is a creamy, deep raspberry shade, with definite pink, berry, and purple tones, that looks darker on the nails than it does in the bottle.

Given my previous experience with FNUG polishes I was looking forward to using this one but I have to be honest and say I struggled with it. Unlike the rest of the polishes that I've tried, this one seemed to be a lot thicker and a little bit more awkward to apply neatly as I'm sure you can see from my pictures. Although you could probably get away with just one coat, I've applied two here to neaten the manicure and to show off the true depth of the colour.

As much as I love the colour of Cover Shot I just don't love it as much as some of the another FNUG shades that I've tried. This beautiful deep raspberry is a perfect transitional shade for that period between summer and autumn but unfortunately I just didn't get on with the formula. The thicker texture was harder to apply and because the polish was thicker it just didn't seem to wear as well as the colours that I've tried in the past. It's a shame but I really do think that this is just a one off and it certainly won't put me off trying more FNUG polishes in the future. FNUG Nail Polish in 55 Cover Shot retails at £12 for an 8.5ml from My Pure x Do you like colours like this? Let me know below x
